Endicott Biofuels to Build Texas Biodiesel Plant

John Davis

Houston, Texas-based Endicott Biofuels has inked a deal with KMTEX Ltd. to build a 30-million gallon-per-year biodiesel plant in Port Arthur, Texas.

This Endicott press release says the refinery will use the company’s proprietary technology, and construction is to begin later this month:

“Our extensive specialty chemical processing capabilities in Port Arthur are well-suited to complement Endicott’s unique production of biodiesel,” said Artie McFerrin, President of KMTEX. “We are excited to begin this fruitful long-term relationship.”

G2 Clear is Endicott’s high-purity, high-quality biodiesel made from waste fats, oils and greases. This patent-protected process is capable of consuming any waste fat or oil in any proportion. EBF will use inedible feedstocks to help the U.S. meet the renewable fuel targets defined in the federal Renewable Fuel Standard and reduce dependence on foreign sources of crude oil.

“We are extremely pleased to establish this new business relationship with KMTEX and with the opportunity to locate our biorefinery here in Port Arthur,” said EBF’s CEO David Robinson. “Our G2 Clear™ has demonstrated the ability to exceed ASTM specifications for biodiesel using 100 percent waste materials and will have sub-60 second cold soak performance and very low carbon intensity, which means a fuel that is both reliable and environmentally cleaner than its competitors.”
